Removed the crank plugs and cleaned the lubrication holes today.
Five of the plugs went easy using a big screwdriver which I hammered through the aluminum. The last one was a bit intractable but in the end it was destroyed.
Mechanically cleaned the bores, blew the rest out and cleaned them with a brush and solvent to get them really clean.
Recut the threads which are M22x1,5 and blew them down again.
I had 100 of the plugs made a while ago, fixed them with a kind of Loctite.
The shaft still is within the spec for new items so the surfaces only neede to be polished.
This crank is a piece of art!
